Reef Imaginarium

01

Info

—01. Photographed at Teahupoo.

Words

According to Reef photographer Chris Straley, “Our concept isn’t 100 percent original, as underwater photography has been seen before, but we wanted an organic, raw feeling. We didn’t want to do helicopters or any of that shit because it doesn’t fit with our brand direction. We’ve seen so many rad below-the-surface photos that guys like Brian Bielmann have shot, and that gave us the idea for an underlying theme—which is to try and portray what a reef would have seen throughout the years since the creation of surfing.”

Look: Fall's Coming

Words

It's now the second week of September and although its still pretty warm in Vancouver, I can't help but look forward to some early fall attire. The knitwear from Margaret Howell, oxford shirts, fatigue pants and Red Wings all feel like they are ready for some wear. No matter the season however, olives, blues and suedes seem to be a continuous thread. They always seem to work well together, and especially when a couple more layers are involved.

Margaret Howell's Ten Best Product Designs

01

—01. Alverston Cutlery Set. Robert Welsh, 1962.
—02. Royal Festival Hall.

Words

Well known for both her understated and exceptional taste, Margaret Howell recently picked her top ten product designs for The Observer newspaper. Some you might guess, others you most certainly won't. Her tenth pick, for example, is Motorway Signs:

"These are so familiar that no one notices how clever they really are. They convey important information quickly, unambiguously and without distraction to motorists travelling at speed. This demands expertise in perception and information processing, but the result is anything but academic, combining shape, type and symbol with simplicity and style. They look as good today as they did 50 years ago and have made motorway travelling safer and easier for millions. It is one of the hardest tasks to be simple. And it’s a triumph."

Needles have an interesting variety of cardigans available this fall. Some include unique trimmings, some use exotic fabrics, but this one just looks cozy. It might not be a classic shawl collar, or navy blue, but the texture and tone of the Boucle cardigan looks quite nice.
